NEW YORK: Two tour buses collided in New York City's fabled Times Square on Tuesday (Aug 5), injuring 14 people, authorities said.
Those hurt included at least three passengers and 11 pedestrians, a fire department spokesman said, adding that three people received serious but not life-threatening injuries.
The accident at the famous intersection, with its dizzying skyscrapers, theatres and flashy billboards, took place after 3 pm (1900 GMT) at West 47th Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan. The square is most famous for its New Years Eve bash but is a major draw year round, crowded with tour parties and street performers.
